    Wooden windows 'add character'


    Wooden-Framed Windows - lets-do-diy.comThe installation of wooden-framed windows is an effective way of lending character to a home.

    According to Steve Hill, managing director of joinery and building specialist Birch Stone, such windows are far more aesthetically-pleasing than their modern uPVC counterparts.

    By replacing the latter with wooden windows, he claims "you can turn a modern building into a house with character, or bring an older property back to its former glory", in comments made to the Independent.

    Furthermore, wooden-framed windows - Mr Hill claims - can help make a property stand out to would-be buyers, DIY enthusiasts may be interested to hear.

    He adds that those looking to improve the energy efficiency of their property may wish to consider installing double-glazed windows that are filled with argon gas.

    Doing so can bring an 80 per cent rise in energy savings in comparison to single glazed windows and a 45 per cent saving against traditional double glazing.

    Indeed, getting to grips with DIY could be advisable as HSBC revealed that fitting new windows will the value of a home increased by an average of £4,423.
